IRONMAN Brazil 

IRONMAN Brazil is a popular event among both local and international athletes alike. Held in the stunning Florianopolis (or “Floripa” as it’s affectionately called by the locals) on the Island of Santa Catarina, it offers a fast yet challenging, scenic course and beautiful beaches. It’s a favourite on the racing calendar and has been attracting athletes from all over the world for over 17 years.

In the men’s race, it was Sweden’s Jesper Svensson who took top spot on the podium. After taking the lead early on in the day, Svensson maintained his lead on the bike (4:23:44) and held on, on the run (2:55:41), to finish the day in an impressive, but not quite record-breaking time of 8:08:07. Almost six minutes behind Svensson was Brazil’s Igor Amorelli who finished in second in 8:14:29. Fellow countrymen, Thiago Vinhal (Brazil) rounded out the men’s podium crossing the finish line in 8:19:12.

In the women’s event Canada’s Kirsty Jahn took top spot on the podium. Jahn dominated the bike (4:55:14) and held on, on the run (3:01:06) to finish in an impressive time of 8:54:58. After a slower start to the day, USA’s Sarah Piampiano tried to make up ground on the bike and run, but despite having the fastest run of the day (2:58:21), Piampiano wasn’t able to close the gap, crossing the line in second place in 9:03:34. Brazil’s Bruna Mahn rounded out the women’s podium finishing in 9:10:38.
